Peel Ports ramps up Liverpool2

Three more STS cranes will bring the total along the 850m long quay to eight, ensuring that two ships can be handled at the same time

Peel Ports Group opened Liverpool2 last November with five STS cranes and 12 semi-automated cantilvered RMGS in the yard for the whole 850m quay. Three new STS cranes and 10 more CRMGs in still-to-be-prepared backlands will complete the main equipment line-up for the facility and the terminal will have the capacity to handle two 380m vessels simultaneously.

There will also be additional reefer points installed to allow the terminal to handle even greater quantities of refrigerated containers at the Port of Liverpool.

Mark Whitworth, CEO of Peel Ports said: “This is an important step in the development of Liverpool2 and reflects our confidence and our long term commitment to positioning the North of England as a competitive route to international markets and a major port for global trade.

“The development of the project programme is now well underway. We are currently preparing the outline designs and would look to be in a position to appoint construction partners in spring of next year, with a view to commencement of construction shortly after. We anticipate a completion date for Phase 2 in 2019.

As yet Liverpool2 has not attracted any regular business, although earlier this year CMA CGM carried out berthing trials with a 6,552 TEU vessel.

Mark Whitworth said: “We are in a good place in our discussions with shipping lines; there are more opportunities on the horizon at the port and our confidence is high as a result.”

Peel Ports Group announced earlier this year that it had secured over 200 signatories for its Cargo200 initiative, aimed at making Liverpool the hub for North/Northwest/Midlands shipping cargo flows.
